Its always your creative ideas and story that makes your music reach out even further to new people. This idea of 10 locked grooves on a 12″ by Darkstar is better than a buddha machine, you might want to preorder 2 of the 12’s incase one wears out.
C Andrew Rohrmann or scntfc is a Seattle based multi-disciplinary audio + visual artist. He has been working in music, design, and media production for the past fifteen years. Rohrmann has completed many successful commissions including feature film scores, large scale audio installations, and art direction for commercial clients. The above is his series Undone:
Undone is an experiment in ambient cinema, comprised of an ever expanding series of short films revolving around the depiction of artificially constructed macroscopic environments. The intent is to evoke a sense of space that is ambiguous in terms of scale: simultaneously microscopically small and astronomically large.
Take a look at this amazing Flickr set of Undone stills.
Why Design is a great video series by furniture company and all around design icon Herman Miller, which profiles some of it’s best designers:
At Herman Miller design is the language we use to ask questions and seek answers to the problems our customers face. The design process is a journey into the unknown—or as George Nelson once quipped, “I have never met a designer who was retained to keep things the same as they were.” Before we decide what we do and how we do it, we like to begin by asking the question “Why?” In Why Design, a new video series, we explore the world through the eyes of our designers, and share something of why we value their point of view.

Slowly i’m filtering thru the latest videos that I think have been visually appealing and a bit more underground since the last Colorvision. Below are some experimental videos but also songs that I go back to in youtube playlists i’ve made.
Coyote Clean Up x Daytime Television – McKayla Scowl
Many people might find this effect as the one that might frustrate you when you have a internet connection but its eased by such a gorgeous track.
Solar Year – Brotherhood
In love with this one, good ideas sometimes bring your video budget down, you just need the right people making all the calls, really looking forward to the Solar Year record.
Vladislav Delay – Levite
An old favorite uncovered, not really into the effect on this one, seems a bit preset-ish.
Trust – Dressed For Space
Everything by Trust has my ear this year, the man shouldn’t stop until each song has video.
Daphni – Pairs
I’m not sure if this is going to be the Daphni live show visuals but by the looks of Pairs and Ye Ye I can see some transitions happening.
Daphni – Ye Ye
Yoshi Sodeoka is the man behind the latest video Elephant from Tame Impala. WHat you should know is that the man has been making analog synthesized videos since 2005 along with DVD, prints and also audio pieces. My favorite video has to be Violet Dark Spring of the Numinous Orb(poster and video above), its a little more my speed.
A year ago, I wrote about a video I made for our Nosh 404 page. Shortly after the success of that video, we set out to film a sequel. The idea behind the followup centered around the same fictional Special Forces team we used to handle that very dangerous and exciting 404 mission. This new video is sort of like a highlight reel of all the skills and tactics they can offer in the “web services” realm.
It’s been a while since I’ve written a process post here, so I figured this would be a good project to start back up again with. It’s pretty far afield from some of the typical design writing I’ve done, but it was a really fun project and an interesting case-study in non-traditional marketing for startups.
Final video above as well as a quick breakdown showing the original footage and the eventual effected final output. Follow me on Twitter here.
